Professional Development Curriculum


Published on

Included in the credit-bearing Professional Development curriculum are company site-visits, lectures by industry executives, and many networking events. By taking students out of the classroom and into the boardroom of local and international companies, they maintain an up-to-date connection with the business world and can rejoin the workforce immediately upon graduation.

Career Services
To assist in the placement process, we help connect students with internship opportunities and facilitate encounters with potential employers. Sofaer students are driven individuals looking to excel in their professional careers; they come from diverse backgrounds, their broad life experiences and creativity make them highly sought after employees.
